The Noxious® was designed as a signature pedal for Nick Catanese (Black Label Society, SpeedX). The Noxious brings a whole new definition to the term high gain. Where most pedals end, Noxious is just getting started! The Noxious pedal includes a fully-adjustable input gain control, amp-like fully interactive bass, middle and treble tone controls and a master volume that doesn't suck tone. With a low-noise input circuit based on Fuchs' Pure Gain pedal, and an output section that is like a miniature power amp, the Noxious can go from a mild overdrive to the sound of an amp on the verge of blowing itself to bits! The Noxious features Nick's custom "Evil Twin" logo, true-bypass, an ultra bright LED, premium jacks and a solid cast-aluminum shell. List Price: $249 • Size: 5"x3.625"
"Because the Noxious pedal pumps out outrageous amounts of gain, it delivers its most versatile tones when used with an amp dialed to a clean setting. If the dirtiest distortion is what you desire, the Plush Noxious pedal delivers what you need." Guitar World 9/09

The Verbrator® is a new multipurpose pedal which combines an all-tube effects loop with a studio grade reverb featuring a 32-Khz clock speed for full 16-K audio bandwidth. The Verbrator® is Fuchs' most innovative pedal offering to date. It’s an effects loop, it’s a reverb, it’s both!
Unlike other “tube pedals,” the Verbrator® power supply features a unique regulated switching technology that takes the incoming 9 volts and converts it up to the optimal high voltage a tube really needs to operate best. In addition, a 6-volt DC regulator provides consistent clean DC power for the tube filament assuring lowest noise and consistent performance despite any changes to incoming line voltage.
The Verbrator® can be used as a pedal on a pedal board as a reverb pedal. It features a level control and decay control allowing you to have a short medium or long decay reverb algorithm. It can also be used as a tube buffer to convert an incoming high impedance signal to a low impedance for long cable runs or driving a pedal board. The recovery (gain) stage can be used to boost the level of a guitar or pedal board with a true tube audio stage. It provides a warm sweet utility gain stage with a multitude of uses.
The effects loop portion of the pedal features a unity gain cathode follower to work with any amp that has passive preamp output - power amp input patch jacks, and not a true active effects loop like Ceriatone, Dumble, Bludotone, Brown Note, some Marshall models and others. It has a send level control and high headroom. The return portion of the loop features a high impedance input (250-K) and a low output impedance with its own level control as well. The loop can be run in series or parallel modes, and features a level adjust switch for rack or pedal style effects.
9-volt DC adaptor provided, the Verbrator® features a unique “window” showing the tube. Like all Fuchs pedals, the Verbrator® features solid cast aluminum powder coated enclosure with heat cured silk screening, dual sided heavy circuit boards, premium switches and controls, and premium electronic parts throughout. List Price: $369
The Pure Gain Plus, combines two of the world's quietest gain boosts with an A/B box. Based on an ingenious suggestion by Dweezil Zappa, the Pure Gain Plus allows you to both balance and boost the levels of two guitars (for example a single coil and a humbucker guitar). It switches to mono operation when only one instrument is plugged-in, allowing it to function as a three mode booster: bypass, and two discrete boost levels.
Like the Pure Gain, when the boost level is at ‘0’ position, the booster acts as a buffer, reducing your guitar’s impedance to about 20-K, allowing it to drive long cables or additional effects on a pedalboard with minimum sonic impact. Until you’ve heard the increase in clarity, detail and reduction in noise this impedance change can bring, you haven’t heard what you’ve been missing!
9-V battery or DC adaptor powered, the Pure Gain Plus features bright LEDs for each input as well as showing which boost channel is engaged. When the unit is bypassed, the respective LED blinks, and when active it turns solid. Like all Fuchs pedals, the Pure Gain Plus features solid cast aluminum power coated enclosure, heat cured silk screening, dual-sided heavy circuit boards, premium switches and controls, and premium electronic parts throughout. List Price: $249
The Tube Screamer might be the most popular and famous overdrive pedal ever made. Made popular by SRV and countless others, the TS-808 (and it's derivatives) have become legendary. When Fuchs designed the Cream, they sought to produce a pedal with the 3-knob simplicity of this classic pedal, while refining the overall design to modern boutique standards. In addition to the selected Integrated circuit, they carefully chose each resistor and capacitor to voice the Cream to be quiet, smooth yet articulate and dynamic. It responds well to both picking strength and guitar volume, and, best of all, it feels like a tube amp. The gain control takes you from a mild edge to the hardest scream. The tone control takes you from a warm "woman tone" to a screaming lead tone with just the right amount of sparkle. Choose your tone, then set your level with the output control and rock on!

When Fuchs introduced the Plush Cream, a number players became repeat customers. When asked why, they explained that they set one for a great rhythm crunch and the second for a screaming lead tone. Fuchs addressed that problem with The Extreme Cream. Feturing two 3-knob channels. One is voiced like the stock Cream. The second is voiced warmer, all under one hood. A simple a/b switch and a simple on/off switch make operation a breeze. In addition to the selected Integrated circuits, they carefully chose each resistor and capacitor to voice the Extreme Cream to be quiet, smooth yet articulate, and dynamic. Both channels respond well to both picking strength and guitar volume, and, best of all, it feels like a tube amp. The gain control takes you from a mild edge to the hardest scream. The tone control takes you from a warm "woman tone" to a screaming lead tone with just the right amount of sparkle. Choose your tone, then set your level with the output control and rock on!

The Plush Drive was designed for those who want the true tone, response and feel of boutique tube amps like the Dumble, Fuchs or Two-Rock, at a reasonable price. Call it your "Robben in a box". The unique 4-knob circuit gives you unprecedented control over the most important aspects of your tone. On the input end, the gain and touch controls allow you to set just the right amount of distortion and pick response, based on your guitar and playing style. On the output end, a subtle tone control and level control allow you to set both your overall lead tone and solo level. A unique bi-fet integrated circuit and matched discrete FET's are designed to emulate the smooth overload and musical second order distortion of a tube circuit quietly, musically, and reliably. Coupled to a good clean amp it's awesome. Add it to your amps overdrive for a super thick overdrive tone you won't know how you lived without before. Quiet enough to put in front of an overdriven amp. List Price: $229

Original Ross and Dan Armstrong compressors are about impossible to find and VERY expensive. The Fuchs Royal Plush pedal is affordable, simple to operate and quiet. True hardwire bypass and premium parts throughout. Volume and bias controls allow you to set your compression from a soft limiting effect to an extremely compressed output. A selected integrated circuit, boutique quality passive parts chosen for tone, and matched FET's assure quiet consistent performance for the life of the unit. List Price: $199
The Plush tremolo is designed to emulate the unique sound of the Fender Brownface tremolo, one of the more unique and sought after tremolo tones. Not only does it provide level variation, but the subtle tonal shifts, not unlike a rotating speaker or chorus, unavailable in any other tremolo pedal. Lush, full, spacious and quiet. Simple rate and depth controls allow you to tailor the tone to your exact needs. True hardwire bypass, battery or adaptor power. List Price: $199
The name says it all ! A unique circuit topology unlike anything currently on the market, the Pure Gain gives up to 25db of gain (that's about a 20 times increase in your guitars output level), with an astoundingly low noise floor. By using selected and matched devices in the circuit, premium parts throughout, we have what we believe may be the quietest gain boost on the market. Besides a true hard-wire passive bypass, the gain control allows you to use Pure Gain as an active buffer, which converts your signal from a hi impedance input to a low impedance output. Excellent for driving long cables, driving a pedal board, or use it to drive an overdrive pedal or amplifier into searing high gain territory. Excellent for raising single coil pickups to humbucker levels. A small footprint allows easily fitting it into most pedal boards easily. List Price: $179

Perhaps the closest tone to a boutique tube amp, without the size, weight, and price! The Plush Valve Job was designed for those who want the true tone, response and feel the only a real tube can provide. Like the Plush Drive, the Valve Job features a unique 4-knob circuit which gives unprecedented control over the most important aspects of your tone. On the input end, the gain and touch controls allow you to set just the right amount of distortion and pick response based on your guitar and playing style. On the output end, a subtle tone control and level control allow you to set both your overall lead tone and solo level. A unique bi-fet integrated circuit matched to a real 12AX7 vacuum tube emulates the smooth overload of a tube amp, but with the shimmering harmonics only a tube can provide. Besides a Santana horn-like musical distortion, the Tube Driver can provide one of the greatest gnarly slide guitar tones you'll ever hear. It has a unique "almost out of control" feel that only a real tube can provide. List Price: $259

Now available and in stock at Radical Tone, a germanium-based booster pedal that is designed by Don Butler for 65Amps. Don has the rights to the Rangemaster name and this pedal is sort of a Rangemaster on steroids. Don added a ‘Color’ knob to it similar to the color knob on the amps and it’s voiced to compliment them. It has a much wider tonal range than a regular Rangemaster and it’s is very useful. This pedal has become quite the rage. Look for a full review and demo from Radical Tone soon.
